Recap: Shiloh Christian 36, Gentry 7

Other than returning to the win column, perhaps the biggest positive takeaway from Shiloh Christian's 36-7 blowout against Gentry was a glimpse of the future. Thanks to 36-0 lead late in the first half, Saints coach Jeff Conaway was able to insert underclassman for the final two-plus quarters, meaning reserves were on the field more than the starters during Friday's homecoming game. Sure, seniors Connor Reece and Broc Berus filled up the box score in limited action, but several less familiar players made their way to the top of many statistical categories. Back-up quarterback Jackson Gower took the most varsity snaps of his … Continue Reading ››

In a battle of unbeatens, Prairie Grove dominated Pea Ridge on Friday in Tiger Stadium in front of a large homecoming crowd.

But the Blackhawks (6-1, 3-1) turned the tables when Jacob Torres returned a kickoff 92 yards, then Pea Ridge recovered a muffed kickoff, setting up Zaine Holley's short touchdown run that tied the game at 14-14 in the second quarter. It was all Prairie Grove after that, specifically Isaac Disney. Disney, a senior who is … Continue Reading ››
